I use this cloze activity with level 2 kids, and they think it's so cute to hear a "little kid" song!

Page 2 : full lyrics
Pages 3 : translation of lyrics to English; link to song online
Here's how I grade cloze activities:
-In a five-day week, we listen 1x/day, at the beginning of each period. I consider hearing it 4x to be a "full week". If you're in class every day, that 5th listen through is just a bonus listen! I collect the songs every day after they listen.
-On Friday we correct together.
-If you get HALF or MORE of the words right (I tell them if it's not EXACTLY RIGHT, mark it wrong), you get 2/2
-If you get anything under half, you get 1/2
-On Fridays, if there is a video for the song (and if it's appropriate) we watch it!
*I make cloze activities very small point values so they don't feel the need to cheat because, obviously, the lyrics are online.
